Saoirse Ronan prepares to depart from LAX airport on Tuesday (February 9) in Los Angeles.
The 21-year-old Brooklyn actress has been spending time with Helen Mirren throughout awards season, and Helen recently gushed over how much she loves Saoirse.
“I’m a little bit in love with her.” Helen said on TodayFM. “I’ve been so amazed watching her come out and make speeches in front of lots and lots of people. She’s so at ease with herself…. You know, she’s made great choices. I think she’s in a position where she’ll be asked to do wonderful work and she’ll do it brilliantly.”
